, brutal and flagrant use of chemical weapons against its own citizens. it comes just hours after white house intelligence report was released. detailing the horrors within that country and the evidence that it has against the assad regime. the president met earlier today with his national security team. and while he confirmed that no final decision has been made, he said the atrocities cannot be ignored. >> this kind of attack is a challenge to the world. we cannot accept a world where women and children and innocent civilians are gassed on a terrible scale. this kind of attack threatens our national security interests by violating well established international norms against the use of chemical weapons, by further threatening friends and allies of ours in the region like israel and turkey and jordan, and it increases the risk that chemical weapons will be used in the future and fall into the hands of terrorists who might use them against us. >> his comments come after secretary of state kerry laid out a forceful case for a strike against syria. >> the american intelligence community h

who's with us. right now u.n. inspectors are back at their hotels after spending another day interviewing survivors and collecting samples. they'll be coming home on saturday raising speculation that a strike might be on hold until after they're safely out of damascus. when it comes to who's with us, our major ally with us in this, british prime minister david cameron, who's facing his own resistance, but others say they won't join in the strike without u.n. support. as we suspect, that won't happen since russia holds veto power on the u.n. security council. russia is a big assad supporter. assad's other ally is iran which is vowing to strike israel. as a precaution, they're calling to issue gas masks. turkey is constructing bunkers and they're sending experts to the syrian border. because there are so many parts, we're looking at this in three sections. first, we're looking a the the pentagon, what's going on behind closed doors at the white house and finally the role of congress in all of this. they're being briefed tonight on u.s. intelligence. we start with nbc news penta

, the syrian government has killed more than 1,000 people using chemical weapons. now, the attack centered on ten towns it and villages near damascus. we want to warn you the video that's come in has been very disturbing. anti-government forces say more than 1200 people have been killed, many of those reportedly children. the video provided by the rebels and not verified by nbc news shows people struggling to breathe as rescuers scramble to save lives. it also shows rows of bodies on the ground. the syrian government denies any chemical weapons were used. the white house says it is deeply concerned and trying to get more information. >> there actually happens to be a united nations chemical weapons investigative team on the ground in syria. they were just granted access to the country yesterday, i believe. so given the reports that we've seen overnight about what may or may not have taken place in syria, we think it's important for that investigative team to be given access to that area. >>> meantime in egypt, a court has ordered the release of former president hosni mubarak, who'
